How MATHCOUNTS Helps Students Succeed

April is Math Awareness Month, and so to help raise mathematical awareness, we have a blog entry from Ronnie Flowers, one of ASTA's Regional Membership Directors.


I have been involved with MATHCOUNTS as a school coach for 12 years and as the Northwest Arkansas MATHCOUNTS Coordinator for 7 years. I love MATHCOUNTS and giving students the opportunity to be involved in something as great as MATHCOUNTS. Even after I left the classroom and joined the staff of ASTA, the Arkansas chapter of the Association of American Educators, I continued to work with the organization, this time as a sponsor.

Because she was African-American, her enrollment was denied and her father, Oliver Brown, filed a lawsuit against the Topeka Board of Education. Several other plaintiffs joined and the case was eventually heard by the Supreme Court of the United States.
